Hengst Filtration Acquires Canadian-American Filter Company

Hengst will take over North American hydraulic filter manufacturer Main Filter.

German filtration company Hengst Filtration announced its takeover of the North American hydraulic filter manufacturer Main Filter, which is based in both Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and Lincolnton, North Carolina. Hengst described Main Filter as a “respected manufacturer of hydraulic filters for more than 35 years.” The acquisition comes three years after Hengst acquired the hydraulic filter business of Bosch Rexroth.

“We are working hard to be the most competent partner for our customers and to provide them with the best possible service. Main Filter is a crucial piece of the puzzle, especially in the North American market,” said Christopher Heine, CEO of Hengst Filtration.

According to Hengst, Main Filter has a wide range of products and is key to Hengst’s ability to supply local customers in North America through local production.

“This is a win-win for the industry and in particular, we are delighted to have partnered with Hengst, who will, as a filtration specialist, continue to provide great service and quality products for our clients. I’m confident, that the culture and leadership of Hengst, aligned with our values and long-term aspirations, will be a great home to all of our employees,” said Bill Horne, CEO of Main Filter.
